Excerpt from a Facebook snapshot
Facebook’s political operation remains quite small when compared with those of its competitors. The company spent just $350,000 in lobbying in 2010, far less than the $5.1 million spent by Google, according to OpenSecrets.org. Still, the company is building up its Washington operation, which now has 10 people. On Monday, the group moved into new offices with plenty of room for growth. In a nod to Beltway humor, the conference rooms have names like the Rose Garden, Camp David, An Undisclosed Location, Smoke-Filled Room and Kissing Babies.
